HP Proliant DL120 Gen9 - RAID 0 on Proxmox

Hi, I have an HP Proliant DL120 GEN 9 server and I made a RAID 0 of two 4TB SATA Disks and I want to virtualize with PROXMOX.
But at the time of wanting to install PROXMOX I do not recognize the RAID made from the BIOS.
It has a Smart Array B140i, I did not find any information on the HP website.
Does anyone know if you can do what I want or is it impossible?

Excuse my English, I'm using a translator. I am from Argentina

you can use HW raids with Proxmox as long you do not use ZFS as files-system on top of it.
But raid 0 is not a good option, raid 1 would be ok.
